Royal Mail has produced a stamp honouring Walsall's Ellie Simmonds' gold medal triumph in yesterday's (1 September) 400m freestyle final.

It is the first time a host country has issued a set of stamps to celebrate Paralympic gold medallists.

Tomorrow, Royal Mail will also paint one of its red post boxes gold in Ellie's home town.
